Question: What is your biggest insecurity and how do you address it?

Answer: "My socioeconomic status has been one of the biggest insecurities that I’ve had. Seven years ago, I was just a meager, marginalized orphan, starving and trying to make her way through. But now, you see me, when you see me, think about how I worked hard and studied even harder to be here and to aspire and conquer the universe.”

Question: What is your greatest fear and how do you try to overcome it?

Answer: "Honestly, my greatest fear is making a fool out of myself sometimes but I conquered that by always putting myself in that kind of situation. Actually, just joining a pageant was something that I was very scared about because of the pressure but I’m standing here in front of you, hoping to be your next Miss Universe so that I can make my country proud once again, ang minamahal kong Pilipinas.”

Question: If you could teach Filipinos one thing, what would it be and why?

Answer: “It would be [to] start loving yourself. Me as a person, I have a lot of flaws. I am not perfect and I may not be the perfect Miss Universe but I am here, trying to conquer my fear, trying to be a better person and pageantry really helped me to be a transformed woman to be truly uniquely beautiful and I think that is what I'll be having in Miss Universe. That is my greatest… Thank you.”

Question: If you could stop time for a day, how would you spend it?

Answer: “If I could stop time, I would spend it with my family, especially my mother. It’s been two years since I didn’t see my family because they live in Italy and I came here to the Philippines just by myself. So if I had a chance to spend one day, I would definitely be with my mom and I would just tell her how much I love her and miss her.”

Question: What is that one life-changing decision that you made, and what was its impact on your life?

Answer: “The life-changing decision I’ve made was to join Miss Universe Philippines again. Despite being bashed for my body, being doubted by people, I found strength in myself. And this story can be a testament for other people to draw strength from too, that a second chance can be just as sweet, and you can still achieve your ultimate a second time around.”
